By choosing a triad -- which you find by choosing three hues equidistant from each other that form a triangle on the wheel -- of blue, red, and yellow, I created a cheery combination of primary colors that blew the cold wintery gloom away. Well, almost.
Now that I know what a color triad is, I'm noticing them everywhere: in fashion editorials, on the red carpet, in catalogs, even in my own closet. I've been mixing and matching different colored clothing in my closet, only to notice that some of my printed pieces already have triads within them!
Granted, this is probably something you learn in fashion school on day one, but it's been pretty mind blowing for me. I hope it helps you, too! I'm definitely going to experiment with other color wheel techniques using these tips from Lauren Conrad, and this tutorial from ACADEMIchic, but until then, try out a triad sometime this week!
